Flat tax shifts tax burdens to the low and middle class. It's a give away to the wealthy.
How can it be a give away when it is even across the board? The rich are still going to be paying the bulk of the taxes simply because they earn more.

That's not the point. Are you THAT far gone?? You are looking at this thing back-ass-wards. It's not what is paid out. It's what's left over, goofy.

Example: You make $50,000/annual. 20% of $50K is $10k. After the government take, you've got $40K to live on.

I make $500,000/annual. 20% of $500K is $100K. After the government take, I've got $400K to live on. Get it??

Those who MAKE more should PAY more because they will still have plenty more to live on.

The Rethuglicans will need 60 votes in the Senate. That is not going to happen. Their tax wetdream will not be realized anytime soon.

We should apply that same theory to sex.

It is not fair that some people get to have sex as much as they want and some others struggle to find a partner for some reason or another. To make things fair sex should be distributed equally throughout society. Those who have plenty should take some of the time that they use having sex w/ their preferred partner and have sex w/ those who society finds less desirable.

Hey, are you saying Trump is an idiot?
It was his idea.

Otherwise they fail miserably.

Because it's never "across the board".
Or are you suggesting that the same rate apply to all income?

Regular, capital gain, dividend, inheritance?

So in the book "WE" the problem was solved by the "pink ticket".
This was a society that sought to be perfectly equal, they could mandate that everyone got the same pay, but some people still had it better than others, and it came down to people with a greater choice of sex partners were better off than people who had a hard time finding a piece of ass.


So Everyone got a pink ticket, every year, who ever you gave your pink ticket to, had to have sex with you.
It was a truly equal society, anyone could have sex with anyone they wanted to.

That's nice


Quote:

The animals of the Manor Farm lived badly. Their farmer Mr. Jones, a mean and drunken man, exploited them. One day Old Major, the pig who led the animals, called a meeting of all the animals. Old Major told them about a dream he had the previous night. He had dreamed about an old song called, 'Beasts of England', which started a resistance against the human beings. When Old Major sang the song most other animals started to join in. Everyone was very excited about rebelling.

Old Major died a few days later and two young pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, started leading the preparations for the Rebellion. About three months later they revolted against Mr. Jones and they took over the farm. The purpose of the revolution was to create a fair society made only by animals, or animalism and it was based on seven commandments such as “Four legs good, two legs bad” and most importantly: "All animals are equal". They also changed the name of the farm to "Animal Farm" from Manor Farm.

Snowball, an inventive and vivacious pig, and Napoleon, a big and cruel-looking pig, started to fight for leadership. In the meantime Mr. Jones was planning to attack to get the farm back but when he did the animals won the battle called "The Battle of the Cowshed". Mr. Jones was forced to stay out of the farm. One day, when Snowball announced his plans to build a windmill, Napoleon arrived in the farm with nine big, cruel dogs that made Snowball run away bleeding. From that day Napoleon was the real dictator of the farm; he sent his dogs to eat up any animal that didn't agree with him. If something went wrong (like when the windmill they'd worked so hard on was wrecked), Napoleon blamed it on Snowball. According to Napoleon, Snowball was sneaking around Animal Farm ruining everything.

When Boxer, the strongest horse in the farm, lost his strength because of old age and fell while he was building a windmill, Napoleon sent him to be slaughtered. Now Napoleon had no pity on anybody. He and the pigs were like Mr. Jones - they exploited the other animals, and they took advantage of the foolishness of some animals. They came into contact with human beings for business although they had said it was forbidden. In the end they became like human beings, they started to walk on their hind legs and they changed the old maxim with a new one: “Four legs good, two legs better”. Nothing was changed and resistance seemed to be useless.
